MOP Glisten

I want to introduce to you my favourite, favourite shampoo and conditioner ever:

Revlon MOP Glisten Shampoo and Conditioner!

I've been using this since february 2009, but because of the price I tried some other things out in the meantime, which were also really good and less expensive, but nothing satisfied me as much (lol) as the MOP Glisten series.

MOP is a "daughter" of Revlon and means "modern organic products". It's not that typical natural cosmetics, but not that conventional stuff either. I'd say it's a mix between both. It has 3 different series: Basics, C-System and Glisten. If you want to learn more, have a look at their SITE!

You can buy it at some hairdresser's shops and online. Source for german buyers

MOP Glisten Shampoo


Contents: maple syrup, avocado, honey, vitamin C, orange extract
Hair Type: coloured and chemical treated hair
Consistency: gel like and transparent
Fragrance: Oranges
Producer's description: Stressed out strands need extra help without the heft. Pure maple syrup and honey boost hair's body and shine while helping to repair damage. Certified organic linseed oil and whole wheat protein restore and protect while you bathe your hair in the freshness of vitamin C infused orange extract.

My Review:

Because of colouring my hair is kinda damaged, of course... the lenghts are dried out and my very fine hair is not very voluminous. No matter what shampoo I use, after washing my hair always feels like felt or straw and it badly needs a conditioner or there is NO WAY to comb or brush it! Really, NO WAY! Glisten is the only shampoo which has not that "felting" effect... I can comb my hair without using a conditioner, it's like a miracle, lol. Although my hair feels clean and refreshed, and very soft and light and after drying it is fluffy and voluminous. I love the smell but it doesn't last very long.

The only con is the price, I paid 14,95€ (Germany). But it's worth it!

MOP Glisten Conditioner


Contents: linseed oil, avocado, whole wheat, honey, maple syrup
Hair Type: coloured and chemical treated hair
Consistency: gel like
Fragrance: Oranges
Producer's description: Need a quick remedy for the stress of getting gorgeous? Help strengthen, restore and protect hair with avocado and linseed oils. Honey serves as one of nature's most powerful humectants and works with jojoba oil to maximize moisture and fullness. Wheat protein helps repair chemical and environmental damage while pure maple syrup infuses hair with body and shine.

My review:

This conditioner has the most unique consistency of all conditioners I ever used. It's not thick and creamy as usual, it's more like a light, white-transparent gel, very nurturing but not weighing down the hair in any way. I used a different conditioner in the past few months (Sante Brilliant Care) which I really liked, but I felt it was too rich and heavy for my fine hair. This light consistency is much better. It has the same orangey fragrance like the shampoo. After using it, my hair combs very smoothly and after drying, it is shiny and voluminous. What could a shampoo and conditioner do more for you? lol

But the same contra here: The price. 15,95€
